Just 5 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico or thriving Downtown St. Pete. Central Oak Park is the third largest neighborhood in St. Pete and is the only residential neighborhood to cross Central Avenue. The neighborhood runs from 5th Avenue South to 13th Avenue North and from 34th Street (Highway 19) to 49th Street.
The neighborhood offers many great things, including diversity in age and lifestyle and a close proximity to downtown and our beautiful beaches. Neighbors take pride in their homes and are comfortable looking out for one another and helping when needed. Central Oak Park is made up of a diverse mix of homes, ranging from 1920’s bungalows, 1950’s Ranches and a sprinkling of new builds. A quick hop on the Central Avenue Trolley and you can be on the beach, strolling through St Petersburg’s trendy downtown, or having cocktails and a bite to eat in the eclectic Grand Central District.
The entire area is easily traversed. Large oak trees and a mature tree canopy provide a park-like setting for many homes. Brick streets dating back to the 1920s add to the charm and character of the neighborhood. An additional bonus is the area’s high and dry elevation, among the highest in St. Petersburg. The St. Petersburg Main Library is located within our borders. The Pinellas Trail originates a few blocks away and provides 43 miles of biking, running, or blading. Perfect for active families and individuals!
